I’m writing this post with a super heavy heart because today is my last day working at Gurl.com. I’ve had the most amazing six months with not only the entire Gurl staff, but with you guys, the readers too! I think that everything happens for a reason and this opportunity came to me during a time that I was feeling really down and upset over both personal and professional life; and you guys, and this site helped pull me out of that. This is by far one of the best places to learn about all things that have to do with being a strong, self-loving, and take no BS gurl.
So enough with the mushy stuff because I don’t do well with goodbyes or showing any type of emotion because I’m waaay too cool for that! I wanted to do a quick (and hopefully) funny rendition of what I learned working at Gurl.com.
1. Love Yourself!
Seriously guys, we all struggle with a ton of insecurities and moments of doubt which will come and go throughout our lives. But at the end of the day, love who you are and know that no matter what, you’re the best at something, and that’s being you.
2. If You’ve Got A Question, Ask!
Especially if it’s on this site. If you’re unsure about anything pertaining to life, love, sex, or anything in between, ask! We count on you guys. So keep on asking because we love to hear from you!
3. Surround Yourself With People Who Love You
There is no magic age where you will finally have all your ducks in a row when it comes to anything. So as long as you have people around you who you love and they love you back, just L.I.V.E.!
4. Laugh, Because Life Is Funny!
I mean come on! We’ve all had awful, horrible, and downright disgusting things happen to us. Whether it’s getting your period mid hookup, making out with someone who left more spit on your face then you knew was humanly possible, and anything to with sex (everything about sex is funny). Laugh it off.
5. Stop Being So Hard On Yourself And Others
This one is serious. We’ve got to stop thinking in terms of slutty, gross, wrong, improper. We don’t want people to judge us, so we shouldn’t judge others. Open your minds to some things that you wouldn’t usually do. You might be surprised by what you learn about others and yourself.
6. It’s Okay To Be Weird…
Or not weird, or anything you want. There is nothing wrong with not shaving your legs, or not showering every day, or liking girls or guys or both! Own it!
7. Have As Much Fun As You Can
Whatever you’re doing or not doing, make sure you’re having fun! Whether it’s with yourself, your family or a group of friends.
8. Do You!
Because you’re the only one who can!
That’s it! It’s been super real guys! Thank you!
